A gelateria, yes, but a well oiled machine! Some nice summer days you can walk on heads just to have your favorite icecream! And believe me, it is worth waiting.

I had the 100% dark chocolate Gelato. It was an amazing flavour, do rich but not too sweet. I wish I had more than 1 scoop! !!

I generally don't like chocolate ice cream, but the chocolate gelato here is to die for! Mostly really good quality dark chocolate. About nine varieties. My favorite is Fiji, with orange bits. Now, there is many other flavors, both fruity and nutty, like Pistacchio and Cocco, also in the must try category. So creamy, flavorful and, definately, not overtly sweet.... More

After reading reviews we tok a trip to this gelateria and did not regret it one ounce! The gelato was so amazing we had two poetions in a row! You could clearly taste and see how the gelato was made from scratch withproper produce as base. Brilliant! Must taste!

The shop is far from the city centre but it shouldnt put you off from making your trip to this place. In fact I quite love the neighborhood and the surrounding area, it is relatively quiet and there's plenty of restaurant nearby. Talking about the gelato itself, it's one of the best and certainly my favourite. There are so many... More

Very nice ice cream - particularly liked the chocolate 'Aztec' with chilli although one scoop was enough and it actually got a bit painful to eat by the end of the scoop. If you are going to try this then I would recommend having this one on top so you can follow it by something a bit cooler......

This amazing place is next to my place and this is very bad because it is very hard not to go there everyday! Best Gianduja ice cream. Almond and pistachio tastes are very rich. I JUST LOVE THIS PLACE!
